Are you intrigued by creative people? Wonder how they do what they do? Then this is your show!

Creative Ops is podcast is for creative people, with all original music.

Join me (Christopher Tallon – writer/podcaster) as I talk to creatives across the spectrum of art, culture, and business about what they do, why and how they do it, and whatever else comes up in an unscripted, long form conversation centered on creativity.

No scripts. No “type” of guest. No “target audience” or “key demographics.” Just real conversations about what’s at the heart of a creative’s creativity, and what their creative process looks like.

Ep. 82 | Everywhere BUT Bookstores Tour (9/27/22): Pharmhouse Wellness Artists’ Market Creative Ops

I'm on my Everywhere BUT Bookstores Tour promoting my novel, Switchers, a scifi story that pits teens in 1996 against their adult selves in a winner-take-all time travel war. Pharmhouse Wellness is more to me than a few pit stops on the tour, they are a partner I've worked with to promote the book and to sell it in their lobby. I'm grateful for the opportunities they've provided me, as well as many other creatives in the Grand Rapids area. This episode is comprised of 6 interviews: 1) Casey and Megan Kornoelje – owners/founders of Pharmhouse Wellness 2) Dennis the frisbee guy – Founder of Wino-O Frisbee in Grand Rapids (Facebook Group)  3) Darcy Weiss aka Doodle Mittens – artist/vendor (www.doodlemittens.com) 4) Chadwick Belbeck – artist/art market attendee/personal friend (IG: @cwick_b) 5) "Uncle" Mary Brandt & (Aunt) Tay Martinez – artists/vendors/adorable married couple (IG: @maryfragdalene & @taymartiart) 6) Abdul – owner of  CHAR, the caterers of the event (www.char-gr.com) . . . http://www.christophertallon.com for all things show/host related.
